Older than 34, I'd say.

I wonder how old you have to be before you stop believing that something has to happen just because you want it so much.

Implicit in this belief is a certain worldview: that the universe is inherently benevolent and that things that are wrong and bad and violations of the way things are supposed to be do not happen. The universe isn't always benevolent, of course. The standard to which I try to hold myself is equal preparation for life's potential for good and bad.

Isn't that the basis for the belief that Iraq will become a stable, western-loving democracy? And all those guys have decades on us.

Reminds me of the Scott Adams method: write down what you want to happen, repeat ad nauseum, and lo-and-behold! it will come to be. Apparently he did this, writing that he wanted to be a comic strip artist, and so Dilbert came to be.

The trick is to limit the things you want so much to things you have or are reasonably sure you can get.

And to misremember how much you wanted things you did not get.

Are you referring to yet another failure to win the porn DVD at Pub Quiz?

So at least 10 more years until reality sets in for me? Crap.

i think it's however long it takes to realize that no one controls the universe by sheer force of hope. for some, it'll take a lifetime. plus.

Bob Dylan penned those exact words for "Blowin' In the Wind," but found it hard to rhyme.

Trieu, your site cracked me up. Does it do anything else?

Megan,

Unforunately, the site does nothing else. It's sort of a placeholder until I can figure out what I really want to do with it. This will happen right after I figure out what I really want to do with my life. (I try to ignore the fact that the site's been that way for something like two years.)

I think it's awesome the way it is.

Thanks for saying so! If I ever do make something of the site, I'll keep the ticket image on the front. (I carry the ticket around in my wallet.)
